Hispanic Heritage Month

Today marks the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month; it was started as Hispanic Heritage Week by President Lyndon Johnson in 1968 and expanded in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan. It starts on September 15 because that is Independence Day for many Latin American countries such as Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua1. Throughout the month there will be posts to celebrate and encourage people to learn more about Hispanic culture. If you want a head start, it looks like NBC started the month of with a Hispanic Heritage Month Quiz!

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! :)

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
